to the presidential race of 2008 and let's not forget, hillary clinton to me, had a lot more sub tans to me than anyone mitt romney's faced in the primaries. i think it's going to be a very interesting debate. >> give you a half a birthday bump. >> friday. >> it's a big week. >> i'm a little older than you, thomas. >> not by much. you're part of the prime time coverage. >> my birthday gift is to see a great debate tonight. >> it's going to make for quite some dinner conversation. watch "politician nation" here at 6:00, then the rev joins the prime time team tonight. >>> nate silver's projection -- coming up which just hours to go before the first debate, what advice to michelle obama and ann romney have for their husbands? plus, the fight for the female vote. colorado congresswoman joins me live. stop! stop! stop! come back here! humans -- we are beautifully imperfect creatures living in an imperfect world. that's why liberty mutual insurance has your back with great ideas like our optional better car replacement. if your car is totaled, we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. call.
public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledg
. and as our story points out, he was a great communicator. >> also on the list, bill clinton, he made that big old splash in the dnc. why was his presidency such a success? >> i think it was him helping the democratic party. helping ending the motion of the a robust welfare state and really modernizing the democratic party and making it more business friendly. >> is there someone who this yale historian decided was the worst president? >> he did not ran rank the worst president of the last 100 years. >> but president obama made that cut, being the most recent. not only even that. i think he was a path breaking president, you look at health care reform. it it it's. >> okay, thank you so much. >> what it takes to prepare to moderate a presidential debate. former abc news news anchor joins us in the next hour with her experience. and the next. there's cash flow options from pnc. solutions to help businesses like yours accelerate receivables, manage payments, and help ensure access to credit. because we know how important cash flow is to reaching your goals. pnc bank. for the achiever in you. ther
turning around. bill clinton gave a great speech at the convention and everyone loved what clinton said. it now turns out there was some underlying economic trends that was feeding that that we didn't really know about, but that makes sense now. and i think if that's the case heading into the critical month of october and obviously in november where we're going to have one more jobs report, i think that really does benefit the president. because that's been the underlying issue of this entire campaign. it's been the issue that mitt romney's campaigned on from the get-go. >> at the convention i think he framed obama the case for obama and particularly the case for obama on the economy more clearly than anyone else has on the campaign. >> no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. the are we doing better today? the answer is yes. >> and we should say, we are act
to see you. neil: how did it good? >> best performance since bill clinton in 1992. mitt romney strategically did everything he needed to do, and the democrats know that. if you look at the democratic spin, people walking around tonight, they are downcast. neil: you know -- >> there are at many of them. they don't have as much to say. neil: just peek around the audience, the number of democrats, seeing the ratio like 8-to-1 republicans. that's just me. you're seeing congressman chaffetz interviewed, but what do you say to that? >> you can't be a great communicator unless you have great things to communicate. president obama faltered tonight. he was halting. he was on the defensive. he couldn't wait to get off the stage. there's a reason for that. neil: that's your opinion. >> well, no, you could observe the fact he got off the stage. neil: i heard a lot, comments to jim lehrer, about you took my five seconds. >> there's a reason president obama struggled tonight. he struggled the last four years. you can't make a great defense of a record that's not been great. you can't communi
as condescending. back when he told hillary clinton that she was likable enough, remember in 2008 during their debate? he's reportedly been practicing some zingers to use against the president. and while powerful sound bites get lots of plays in the days after the debate, remember where the beef commercial, stuff like that. it's questionable if a few good one-liners will be enough to put mitt romney in the white house. here's the question, what can mitt romney do to win the first debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post a blog or go to "the situation room" facebook page. >>> president obama's court looks different than it was when he was elected with two new justices he nominated. how could it change in four more years if he is re-elected? joe johns has been looking at this story. yesterday, joe, you did a whole piece on how the supreme court might be affected if mitt romney were elected. today you're looking at how the supreme court could be elected if the president is re-elected. >> right, wolf. if the president is re-elected we already have a pretty good road map to the kind of per
and state department, and reported by fox news. a spoke person for secretary of state clinton said that secretary believes rice has done 88 a suburb job as -- done a quote, suburb job as u.n. ambassador. contravened their statements to the american people. and congress. we'll take all that up he tonight with former cia operative, mike baker, author of "new york times" bestseller, the amateur, inside look at obama administration. ed klein, what would mildred friedman think of obamanomics. is t this a cover-up by the obaa administration? certainly the administration has stonewalled congress and the national media about details of what happened on september 11. the obama administration is chosen to rely on the fbi to investigate the terrorist attacks in benghazi. which killed 4 americans including our ambassador. fbi investigators however remain in tripoli, they have now been for almost 3 weeks, they have done nothing, seen nothing, and obama administration, refers all questions to the fbi. which knows nothing. one could say, conveniently show, fox news correspondent katherine hairage
between bill clinton and bob dole? they didn't matter at all. when they do, a moment rather than the overall tenure of the debate. before the words go by, it's water cooler talk. it's right there. if it looks too staged it looks too staged and mitt romney, one of hig biggest problems with the public, a questioning of his authenticity. if it comes across as a maneuvered, it's less effective. he needs to challenge the frame bill clinton built successfully at the democratic convention. maybe the commit isn't where you want it to be but it's better than when he first got into office. romney has an opportunity to cause voters to look at this through a different lens. that's very important for him. >> president obama trying to lower expectations for wednesday. what he said at a campaign rally in las vegas yesterday. >> governor romney, highse's a man. but, what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and the source of security for hard-working americans. that's what people are looking for. that's what the american peo
. you're right, we said in the run up to 2008 that hillary clinton was the most dominant front-runner in politics. that had nothing on what we should be if she decided to run in 2016. >> can i just -- no. i got to tell you. you know, i know she's enormously popular right now but it's because she's not running. i mean, it's not that hard to be that popular. >> but a lot of democrats are saying, wait a minute, she literally got shafted in 2008. this is not fair. this is her turn and thus -- look, this is -- >> they're saying, she's been a loyal soldier for the last eight years, quote-unquote. she has to run. >> i said it in '08. i'll say it in '16. it is not a place for loyalty or for mrs. clinton. it is an indication about one's own ability. i think she's fantastic. i really do. i also think that american voters don't particularly like older women. we won't even buy like makeup from older women. i think even as i was talking about joe biden being 70, hillary clinton as an aging woman becomes less and less appealing to american voters. not in the way that -- just in a way that i
immediately. barack obama. it happened with hillary clinton time and time again where hillary clinton, chris dodd, joe biden, outdebated barack obama in every single debate back in 2008. every single debate. chris dodd, joe biden, hillary clinton just ran circles around him. and people say, well, why can't he -- at some point you just have to say, because he doesn't have his -- i mean, a great of a grasp on the issues as the people he's debating. >> that's sobering but it's true. i still believe it's the professor. >> how can you be president of the united states, mark halperin, and, i mean, and not have these basic answers? >> well, it's more than i think the format than not having the answers. he spent a lot of the evening going after mitt romney for things that he thinks he can win the election on like taxes and medicare. it wasn't like he never responded to it. >> but isn't the format in washington is that you get in a room with someone and you go at it and you try and figure it out? >> that's what we're asking. has he been too isolated? listen, we talked to him. the guy is brilliant. he
, it is for the former president, bill clinton. it is simply this, get out there. get on the trail, sir. i think he's going to be out there next week. bill clinton should be out there every single day. i don't know what the dynamic is currently between him and the president -- >> it's wonderful. he's advertising for the obama campaign. >> you know what, maybe president obama needs to change debate partners. maybe he needs to go practice with bill clinton. john kerry is not cutting it. >> he should have bill clinton in his ear the whole time the explainer in chief. i think if bill clinton, i think he should probably bring big bird with him. >> didn't big bird get fired? >> big bird, get a safe house. do it now. >> the bromance lasts until november. >> my advice is for joe biden. do not try to overwhen sate by going in there charging like the bulls of pam plo na in your debate. the only thing that may be worse than an overly passive barack obama is an overly aggressive joe biden. >> a bull in a china shop maybe. >> maybe. listen, if he's hard to control when he's on script, just imagine him unscripte
chairman darrell ice looking to secretary of state hillary clinton for answers. telling congressmen issa the extra resources are being denied despite firebombings and online death threats. vice presidential nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is partf a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired l
going, i can't believe what i'm seeing? bill clinton's thinking, okay, i saved his convention. do i have to -- i mean, you know bill clinton, along with every other democrat, was pulling his hair out last night. >> oh, yeah. >> so many softballs lobbed barack obama's way that he just didn't take a swing at. >> i think that when you look at those debates four years ago, all obama had to do was to show up and to be calm. they were -- we were in the midst of an economic panic. and he showed, you know, a very calm and steady demeanor which was reassuring. but he's never actually had to make a case in a debate. and he couldn't make a case last night. he couldn't even make a case for his own stimulus program. it was astonishing. >> this was each candidate's best and worst on display because the president -- i think a lot of people agree -- debates aren't his strong point and the stylistic part of it is difficult. with mitt romney, even during the primary, even though the competition was clownlike, he always stepped up and was aggressive and was impressive. >> that's right. this shouldn't come

, in terms of obama, the great question the democratic presidents have been asking since clinton is, can you get a non-judge on the court? kagen was not a judge, but her background was judge-like. we were discussing earlier, the court that decided the board of education, one of the justices, not one had been a full time judge before. when alida replaced o'connor, they were all federal court judges. that is a terrible lack of diversity. she knew what it was like to raise money. >> she was a former state legislature. a lot of what comes in front of the court are sta chte statutes. >> for the middle. >> citizens united is a case that talks about giving money to campaigns as if it's a first amendment speech driven process. a politician may say, can i tell you what goes on, why people give money to campaigns? >> yeah. >> i would think, if this president is reelected, because there are so few court of appeals judges who are the right age, he will have to look outside the judiciary, which i agree, is a great thing. it's not only understanding how government works, it's understanding people's proble
dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we saw erskine bowles earlier this week in chicago, tom, and i said erskine, isn't it the truth that medicare and medicaid by itself is going to consume every cent that the federal government takes in in 20 years? he said no, that's not true. he said, it's doing it right now. he said, this year alone, in the fiscal year that just ended, every dime the federal government got went to pay medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt. that means everything else that on outside of medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt, we borrowed from china. we borrowed from the saudis, we borrowed. we went deeper in debt. that's unsustainable. and the fact that we're not having that discussion in this camp
details would you like from senator clinton, i mean secretary of state clinton? >> we would like to see any communications from chris stevens or any other member of the embassy or consulate in libya leading up to the days of the attack on 9/11 if in fact the information in the diary is correct it has been reported, i cannot believe that they did not have earlier warning that this attack was going to take place. shoe so you are not going to wait for the fbi then, senator? >> no. and i'm a signatory on the letter. i wanted to make this clear, geraldo. we voted in the committee on the 18th of september to send the letter. it was not sent until the 27th. between the 18th and 27th the information came out about the diary that is when senator corker of tennessee and myself sent the letter asking for the communiques. we believe if chris stevens' diary is correct he sent information to the administration and shelling and they failedsmith failed to to do what they should have done to protect the ambassador. >> can this affect the vote turnout and total in florida? >> i think so. when you look at
know, with bill clinton and george bush and to spend all of this time with george bush at camp david and to do horseshoe throwing, skeet and trap shooting, to sit in the oval office and to listen to his meetings -- >> amazing moments for a guy from -- an unknown kid from austria. >> it's unbelievable, that ride. and the book also deals with the determination and the fanaticism and the competitiveness. and always keeping the eye on the ball. and i even have -- you know, the 15 arnold rules and everything that helped me get through and to get to where i am today. so that is what the book is about. >> whatever you've done in your life, when you've wanted something badly enough, you've tended to get there. you clearly would like to repair your marriage, as you said, to the one and only love of your life really. if maria is watching this, and she might well be watching this, what would you say to her? >> i'd just say sorry for what i've done, you know, and i want to win her back and to hope, even though she talks about forgiveness forgiveness, that she really can forgive and we can be tog
. neil: why? >> held up, the mart held that up. you talk about the clinton effect from the convention, probably overstated. neil: bad reflection on the republican nominee? >> i think a lot more of it has to do with the fact that people, when they start paying attention to this, and they look at all the economic indicator, and they recognize that my average income is down over what it was when president obama took office, by average, the average in the economy is $4500. my health care costs are up by 30%. college tuition up 25 #%. fuel costs have more than doubled, and we have this massive debt that we're piling on the backs of the children and grandchildren. that's going to start to resinate and i think sink in. neil: when does that happen, senator? there's an argument, as you probably heard, that the economic numbers of late are better. they are not great. better is certainly not good. we got an adp report, private sector growth, stronger than thought. still on the same day there was a report from hewlitt packard that things look lousy for the next few years. it's in the eye of the b
and hillary clinton, every third night people said he has to be more aggressive, he has to come after her. it was the same kind of critique of his performance. and it did get more pointed over time, but b, the number one value that the obama team sees as their candidates' chief virtue is his personal likability and they will do nothing to risk that. so this was an intentional strategy -- >> do you think obama gained people tonight? >> i don't know. >> this is about winning. this is a huge election. you can't go out there and say. they want the jugular on this guy. >> i know. but they have -- all i'm saying. i'm channelling them for a moment. i tend to agree more with you. but they have said from the beginning we know the liberals want the jugular but we will not give it to to you. the reason people like this man is because he's not the kind of person who ever goes to the jugular. >> so he left the impression tonight that he's really going to fight when it comes to social security? >> i didn't think so. >> i do think one of the remarkable things about tonight is the fact that the president
and recommendations to secretary clinton within 60 days of its first meeting, unless the chair determines a need for additional time. in simple terms, no time limit. do not expect anything before the election. now more than three weeks after the attack, the consulate in benghazi is still not secure. according to a "washington post" reporter on the ground in benghazi, sensitive documents, including the personnel files and records outlining efforts to rounds up loose weapons in libya can be found in plain sight. a republican on the house government oversight committee is criticizing the administration's state of of reliance on the f.b.i. investigation given agents are not in benghazi. >> the area is too dangerous for the f.b.i., but it wasn't dangerous enough for this administration to increase security. i'd like to ask that and i plan on doing it next week. >> fox news has confirmed the state department has yet to provide documents, including e-mails and other communications about security to republican senators corker, isakson, and the house intelligence committee. guys, back to you. >> steve: t
, an independent. lou: and joining us now the "a team" former clinton advisor doug shoen and democratic campaign strategist with joe trip be. kevin, you were urged tweeting throughout the debate were you surprised or impressed by governor romney's other domination? >> i have not been impressed in person. he does not come off as being that commanding. he gets complaints about being vague about his agenda but he was so quick and ready it took the edge off. i was pleasantly surprised. >> totally. he is an expert. more likable and commanding than i expected. and the president was stammering, unfocused. lou: sitting there watching this i could not believe anyone seeking to hold the office would have his head down not address his opponent. it was bad manners aside from everything else. >> i agree i was surprised how sharp he was. it was a great performance. but barack obama with plenty of the debates hillary and edwards drove the debates pushing forward. he did not engaged later he got better. >> have you ever seen a better debater? >> there have been. lou: i am curious. >> ronald reagan. lou: he lost
talking about with hillary clinton when he said you're likeable enough, hillary. that was a similar dynamic. obama was winning the likability race there. he said it almost in an offensive way. he's got to be careful that -- obama doesn't have a lot of respect for mitt romney. >> exactly. does that manifesto owe that's going to be hard to keep under wraps? >> i shouldn't say obama personally. i know the people around him and the campaign, they're dismissed with this guy. i don't think there's a lot of personal chemistry between them. obama has to make sure that doesn't come out, he doesn't seem air gant or dismissive about this guy being on the stage with him. >> i want to -- these digs at president obama. that's something unnatural. is that a great idea? i found that really shocking. >> the bad idea is telling people about it beforehand. all of them do that. if you talk to the debate coaches and the guys who prep the candidates, they always prepare the zingers. a lot of the ones we think of historically were ones that were prepared going into the race. but you don't go out and tell
? >> and obama's comment about hillary clinton. one thing analyst's agree on. >> he's got two very tough competing goals, be likable and may out a contrast. >> we have gotten to know barack obama pretty well, we have seen anymore as president for four years. mitt romney, he has still got a little white space on his canvass, he can still show us who he is and where he would lead us. >> reporter: the president spends the first part of the week in the battleground state of nevada where he'll be practicing with john kerry, and president obama will be practicing with rob port man who is playing president balm. >>> president obama and milt romney face to face as american voters weigh the choices. the first presidential debate starting wednesday night october 3. watch it live right here at 7:00 eastern time on cnn and on cnn.com. >>> police in winter springs florida are investigating a deadly shooting this morning outside a veteran of foreign wars lodge. our affiliate says a group of bikers was getting ready for a charity motorcycle ride when a group of armed suspects showed up and opened fire.
back four years ago, he did pretty darn well against hillary clinton who is a tough debater. he survived those primaries and did a pretty good job against john mccain in three tough debates in the financial crisis and some of the big debate in 2008. >> the senator of the foreclosure crisis arguably. that could hurt the president. >> it can, because it's sort of the right climate for mitt romney to take advantage of the president's battle ground, foreclosure of the country. double digit unemployment in the state here. worse than the national average. what the president is trying to do is say look, not just low her expectations from the debate but say he has got a better plan for the future. take a listen. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. the president trying to focus on the future not his record. the past seems to be working in this battleground not by a lot but the real clear politics average of
. first heed you is say about the kay men islands bill and hillary clinton claim $200,000 of foreign tax credits in 2006. that's more than i did. >> bill: he has got it say to the people these criticisms will -- okay for the secretary of state by isn't it okay for me. >> bill: you said something very interesting. you said that he has pulse ahead in the swing tates last time you said he wasn't. >> i said just the opposite. falling behind. -- that is true i think the polls are rest. i just went through it if you take ohio, florida and virginia, you combine them, the exit polls from the last four elections have a 1 point democratic skew. the polling that has been done in the month of september in those three states has an 8 point democratic skew. >> bill: i know that. >> a 7 point -- >> bill: are you holding to what you said here last week whereas you don't believe these polls, you think that they are consciously -- remember what you said was done deliberately to put the president ahead in a psychological way. are you still holding to that? >> i do. >> bill: if the election were held tomorr
as president is the same thing that ronald reagan did and, frankly, bill clinton did. hold your principles. be tough. in the end you know you have to negotiate, and that's the only way this country can move forward. that is what president romney will do, and that's the president that people saw potential president that people saw next president they saw debating the other night. >> governor strickland, the last few seconds to you. is it going to be a closer race than it has been when we see the results come out? >> of course, ohio cannot be taken for granted, candy, by any candidate or either political party. it will be a very close race. i believe because of the president's saving of the american auto industry, which, in fact, is realed to manufacturing jobs in ohio, and ohio is coming back, and we're grateful for that, but the president deserves, many my judgment, the lion's share of the credit for ohio's economy, and its rebound. >> from ohio governor ted strickland. ohio attorney general and former senator mike dewine, thank you both for being here. >> up next, making sense to the eyeb
the evening at a private event with former president bill clinton and a dozen of his top donors. it's the latest in a series of trips to tinsel town to raise money. joining me now is our nbc white house correspondent. we've been talking about it all weekend. president obama's record setting fundraising total for last month. $181 million raised in just one month. campaign clearly not hurting for money, so what's behind these continued trips to tinsel town? >> reporter: you've already answered your own question. you saw those polls tightening up. everyone considers mitt romney to have won the debate last wednesday. the president has these high-profile events in los angeles. he has three in los angeles, three more in san francisco. we'll talk about that concert in los angeles later today. you're right, he starts off with a smaller event. bill clinton, i think there are 12 people attendees at a private residence. george clooney hosts this concert. a lot of big names. jennifer hudson, katy perry, stevie wonder are going to be performing. another fundraiser after that. a smaller gathering
clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink they are over sampling democrats and the mainstream media is away from what the race is. that is, a close contest. the president is about 48 or 49 percent approval and vote share. the governor's campaign has lost support. he is down around 43 percent. the 47 percent combined with the drift in the campaign has reduced his vote share, but it is still a a race, and the debate will be critical. >>gregg: this poll shows president obama at 49 and 44 and that can chain instantly. some of the media have written governor romney's obituary, this is premature. >> the media polls, the mainstream media uses the state polls like the new form of negative advertising. other negative campaigning against romney. the news organizations that are broke are spending thousands and thousands on the state polls each week to show, to push obama. look, th
for jimmy carter, and doug schoen, a former pollster if bill clinton. doug, the rasmussen poll is more accurate because it is strictly post debate? >>doug: gallup is seven days, scott rasmussen polls three days moving average so it is all post debate. he shows four points of movement in his national polling which puts obama from a narrow lead to a narrow deficit. effectively, though, this race is deadlocked. when we get to the swing states we will see that. >>gregg: people call this a bounce for romney. >> but a bounce does not last in >>pat: this could be the most significant debate in terms of impact other than reagan's debate against carter in affecting the race. debates usually do not move numbers. romney is getting real movement out of the debate. what it does and what has happened, romney's favorable rating has skyrocketed. we saw that among uncommitted voters in the cbs poll, after the debate, and we talked about this last week, 30 percent of the people say he cared about them, it doubled to 53 percent. he did what we suggested. by the way that is the important thing, changing t
